Sharia Rising Teaser

Indonesia has always been the mostly by muslims inhabited country with a rather moderat, sometimes liberal, understanding of Islam. But it seems that things are changing. Radical muslims, for ex. based in Banda Aceh where they invented the Sharia law after the province gained a partly independence, try to invent a radical Islam in whole Indonesia. And sadly enough things are really beginning to change for ex. in Lombok, where always the liberal Wetu Telu Islam ruled, but also in the holiday island Bali.
